I believe the Symmetricom NTP servers do this, whether or not they
have external access to the oscillator or not I'm not sure. I know
that even their most basic model has OCXO and/or Rubidium upgrade
options.  The SyncServer S100 can be disciplined by either NTP via
networking or GPS.
I think all NTP server appliances have this functionality by their
nature, whether or not the oscillator is of particular high quality
(low noise) or not. Many of the low-end ones likely just use a
standard oscillator "in a can"  that the embedded processor uses.
